Princeton's Month of Service
Happy New Year! The Pace Center for Civic Engagement is celebrating our 15th anniversary and honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a “Month of Service” all January long! We’re inviting students, faculty, staff and alumni to join us to volunteer, learn and serve together. Each week features a variety of opportunities that illuminate why “Community Matters” and includes a fun activity from our soon-to-be released Field Guide to Service to get you prepped and deepen your service experience. Use #PrincetonUServes to share and be a part of the Month of Service whether you take part here on campus or in the community!!
